3 out of 5 eggsFine if you want a simple AP router

Pros: This is a fast router/AP with some advanced settings for those who like to tweak for performance.

Cons: WDS does not work with my primary ASUS router, period. I spent a week off and on trying to get WDS up and running. I would have preferred a bridge or repeater setting, but that was not available in the stock firmware; only WDS which is always iffy no matter the brand. There is no third party software support; not DD-WRT, OpenWrt, or any other (unless you want to start tweaking and building some of these builds yourself).

Other Thoughts: If you need one AP/router and want speed, then this is a good bet, especially if you can find it on sale. If you need anything more advanced or bridged, forget about it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous,

I am sorry for your frustration on the WDS feature. Please email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TEW-691GR Review" in the subject line and I will respond immediately to assist you in getting the WDS up and running. Thank you for taking the time to review our product. We hope to hear from you soon to regain your trust in TRENDnet.

Warm Regards,
Adrian

1 out of 5 eggsDon't be cheated by their three antennas

Pros: none. I only use it for two months and have to buy another one.

Cons: There are lots of bugs in their firmware. You have to do power cycle every day.

Do not be cheated by their three antennas. I don't see any thing better to my old single antenna router. It seems it is not real MIMO design.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't ... Just Don't

Pros: NewEgg is the pro for allowing me to return this.

Cons: I spent 2 - 1 hrs calls with Trendnet, They had me reset my puter settings and now my pull down history is terrible. It does not work on my I phone unless I retsart everything and takes 20 minutes to send and emailed picture to myself sitting near the device. My hard wired computer now keeps "loading" hulu or netflix video. My new $999 hp laptop is slower than it should be. I also have the TEW-652BRP and it works fine at my other home but I wanted to get a better one. So am moving on. Look at the bad piling up before you gamble. they lowered the price 2 times since I bought and belive it should be $29 before you should take a chance. Never have lf a bad review, Also Trendnet support is good and fast to answer the phone but have heavy asian accents spending much time getting them to repeat. These devices should work with a avervage persons capabilies. I have built 6 computers in 5yrs and consider my self above average in electronics........

Other Thoughts: Just very fustrated. I will now spend another hr reading reviews and buy and wait for another brand to show up in the mail
